Adaa-The Drama SIG
The word “Adaa” literally translates to “Grace”. It means a certain something in the way one walks, the tone of one’s voice and one’s expressions that embodies a distinct elegance, style and attitude. Or more generally, having a certain air about oneself, which is felt by one’s mere presence.
Adaa is the IPM Drama Club, and it aims to bring out that very grace and talent in the IPM students, for the world to see and admire. Alfred Hitchcock, the master of suspense said, “Drama is life with the dull parts left out.” Truly, drama is a slice of life, a way of expression, a podium for display of creativity and ideas and more importantly, the performer’s catharsis. Adaa incarnates this very belief and aspires and works to introduce and expose the future managers from IPM to the world of expressions and emotions through drama and theatre related activities and to give voice to their emotions and ideas.
Adaa performs a wide ambit of activities ranging from performing dramas and plays for the IIM Indore community, preparing IPM students to participate in different undergraduate level drama related competitions, promoting a culture of drama and theatre within the IPM community, exposing IPM students to stage and giving them a taste of performing for an audience, exposing IPM students to famous dramas and plays from famous playwrights and introducing them to different cultures and ideas, making movies for the IPM students on various topics and using various techniques, – to – providing IPM students the right platform to express, create and sensitize.
It is Adaa’s prerogative to make the IPM students’ 5 years of stay at IIM Indore fun filled, eventful, memorable and a getting-to-know-oneself-better experience and Adaa continuously and diligently works towards achieving these ends.
